Moricq and Angles
The nearby town of Angles has a bustling centre, with weekly street markets in the summer, lots of local shops (bakery, butchers, hairdressers, tabac etc..) and several restaurants (pizzeria, grill, seafood), not to mention a wine seller/cave where you can taste the local wines before buying (very good value for money)!
The beach and coastline is only a 10km drive from Angles and this is the main attraction for the area. Miles of sandy beaches stretch in both directions - with great waves for surfing and bodyboarding, beaches with rock pools and lots of space to relax and get a sun tan. Some of the beaches have entertainment laid on in the summer months and most have lifeguards on duty. The seaside towns of La Tranche sur Mer and La Faute sur Mer are less than 15 minutes away, and here you will find lots of souvenir shops, bars, restaurants, and great ice cream!
Within a 15 minute drive of the villa is a karting track, a Chateau with a treasure trail through the grounds and chateau, an Indian Forest Adventure Park where you can fly through the trees on zip wires, ride ponies, play on the water attractions or picnic in the forest. For a more leisurely day out, there is the Jardins du Court d’Aron at St Cyr en Talmondais - great for young children - with an area for young animals to pet, tranquil walks around the large parkland area and summer shows with a Polynesian theme.
The Old Port of La Rochelle and the Ile de Ré are within an hours’ drive - great for eating out - with pretty harbours and winding streets. La Rochelle has lots of festivals and street entertainment every evening in summer.
Further afield is the Marais Poitevin Regional Park - with miles of canals and pretty riverside villages - a relaxing day out - punting on the rivers and exploring the ruined abbeys nearby.
No visit to the Vendée would be complete without a trip to the Puy du Fou Theme Park - with Gladiators, Vikings, Knights, Musketeers and a fantastic Bird of Prey show, not to mention the spectacular evening show with over a 1000 participants!
